|Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy||The second phase was prepared by the India Resident Mission through a major change in scope of the cluster TA. This major change in scope involved an increase in the cluster TA amount by $8 million equivalent allowing for inclusion of new TA subprojects, and extension of the cluster TA completion date to 31 December 2013. The Board approved the major change in scope on 4 October 2011. The proposed project preparatory technical assistance (PPTA) for the Rajasthan Urban Development Program constitutes a part of the new TA subprojects, and is planned for 2011 processing as indicated in the Country Operations Business Plan India 2012-2014. The concerned departments reviewed its project concept paper as part of the resident mission's draft memo on the major change in scope. The cluster TA subproject contact mission fielded in November 2011 confirmed that the State Government of Rajasthan was ready to implement the cluster TA subproject to prepare and finalize the details for the ensuing ADB financial assistance scheduled for processing in 2012-2014.|
